? or bolster romney's claims on the economy? jake tapper is in ohio. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning from a barn outside columbus, george. that's right, with this race so close here in ohio, any major event could tip undecideds or soft voters into the obama camp or the romney camp. so, all eyes are on the jobs report in this nail-biter of an election. stumping for votes, the candidates leave no stone unturned. in west virginia, romney was heckled. >> what about the climate? that's what caused the storm. >> reporter: he did some heckling of his own against the president. >> the president said he was going to consider putting in place a secretary of business. i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president that actually understands job creation. >> reporter: as the president did in green bay, vegas, and boulder. fresh from hurricane sandy, he talked unity. >> there's no democrats or republicans during a storm. just fellow americans. >> reporter: but minutes

statement governor mitt romney calls the job numbers a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. they both went on the attack for the first time since hurricane sandy. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one, we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> reporter: before the numbers came out, i asked robert gibbs if the higher jobless rate supports romney's criticism of the president's record. >> look, i think what we expect to see is continued movement forward, 32nd month of positive, private sector job growth adding to the 5 million jobs that have been created as a result of those positive months. look, we're not where we all we want to end up, but we are making serious, important progress moving forward. mitt romney isn't a change agent. he wants to getg back to the economic theory that got us into this mess. >> four days left until election day

/bad economy. they kind of microtargeted which is why the romney campaign focused on the issue of coal for instance. hitting the issue of coal hard. >> and the microtargeting is so interesting because every state is different. it has a different economic fingerprint, if you will. if you look at florida, where housing is a very big deal in florida. in florida it's been kind of a pretty stubborn unemployment rate. i think it's still stuck near where it was before. 8.7% today. that's exactly where it was when the president took office. it's come down from the peaks, but still basically where the president took office. and then in virginia you've got an unemployment rate that is also essentially gone up and come back down and it's essentially flat in virginia, too. it also depends on if there's a republican governor, as well. >> that's one of the very interesting things about the political dynamic. each of these states has a republican governor who is a key surrogate for mitt romney. that governor is unwilling to make the economic argument that times are awful because they're in offic

, is that this message of, hey, there might be something here that governor romney can do to at least feed up the economy, will certainly resonate with white male voters, and that could be getmental to decks in many races but, of course, most importantly the presidency, david. >> i don't buy it, and i'll tell you why. i'll take out mitt romney on his offer and i like if i live in ohio or wisconsin fwampl. i'll like what the president has done. it's auto bailout all the way. in over 20 years working in washington i learned publicly traded major american corporations go through great pains not to look too political one way or the another. the significance of two ceos of major american corporations come out to correct in very colorful language mitt romney's statement. people in ohio trust those brands and companies. they want jobs from those companies. when they hear this public slapping of mitt romney from the leaders of those companies, that undercuts his credibility p more than anything he can take. it's staggers to me. >> le met play what clintoned. i'll tell you another concern a lo
